A STAGGERING €150 MILLION PAID OUT IN 2018 ON THESE GAMES ALONE
Published: January 29, 2019
Microgaming recently announced that in 2018 alone, their progressive jackpot network paid out a staggering €150 million in winnings and just nine of these lucky winners managed to net a cool €40 million between them, each with seven sum figures of their own. When converted into Canadian dollars at today’s rate of exchange it works out to more than CA$226 million in jackpot winnings being paid out last year. It also means that just nine of those lucky winners scooped just over CA$60 million between them.
The single biggest win last year occurred on mobile on Microgaming’s Mega Moolah progressive jackpot slot machine. This big win came to €18,915,872 (approx. CA$28,599,908.47) – making it the single biggest win ever and entering the Guinness Book of World Records as the ‘largest jackpot payout in an online slot machine game’. This life-changing jackpot win beat the previous record that was set back in 2015 on the exact same game.
“Congratulations to all the lucky winners in 2018,” said the Microgaming CEO, John Coleman. “We are proud to host the industry’s largest progressive jackpot network, which paid out more than €150 million last year, setting a number of payout records in the process. It is remarkable to see total payouts nearing €1 billion, which really highlights the strength of the network, and we are excited to be working on a series of developments aimed at taking our progressive jackpot offering to the next level,” added Coleman.
One of the most exciting things about the Mega Moolah online slot machine is that the Mega Jackpot (the largest of four progressive jackpots) will never drop below its original seed amount of £/€/$1,000,000.00 and this can be won from as little as CA$0.25 per spin. The Mega Jackpot on the Mega Moolah online slot machine is currently at more than CA$18 million and you can play to win this mouth-watering jackpot right now at many of our top-rated Canadian online casinos.
The Mega Jackpot is actually connected to several Microgaming slots, so when you next play at Spin Palace Casino, Royal Vegas Casino or Jackpot City Casino, the games that you need to keep an eye out for include Mega Moolah, Mega Moolah Isis, Mega Moolah 5 Reel Drive and Mega Moolah Summertime. You can also now play to win more than CA$636,860 on the King Cashalot slot and more than CA$1,057,581 on the Major Millions slot.
